Thallumaala is a Malayalam movie directed by Khalid Rahman and written by Muhsin Parari and Ashraf Hamza released on 12th of August 2022. The film has got overwhelming responses from all over Kerala. Its a fully colorful and zestful movie. Everyone who watch this movie in theatres would feel that this was the kind of movie Mollywood has been lacking. We could say that the huge promotion the movie got didn’t result in vain.
Thallumaala comes under the genre of Action-Comedy. The film features Tovino Thomas, Kalyani Priyadarshan, Shine Tom Chacko, Lukman Avaran, Johny Antony. Khalid Rahman, truly accords us with a visual treat. Each and every fight scenes were striking and engaging. Even the title of the film also feels impeccable and indeed matching with the theme.
Thallumaala revolves around the life of a youngster Waseem (Tovino) and his companions. As we have seen in the trailer of this movie its actually a chain of fights , nothing more nothing less. Even though the film lacks to maintain a proper storyline Khalid’s way of presentation got the movie into a whole new level. The theatre experience is just mind blowing.
The technical team of this movie really deserves a great appaluse as it was technically perfect in every aspect. Cinematography by Jimshi Khalid and Editing by Nishad Yousuf also require a remarkable mention. Vishnu Vijay’s BGMs also facilitates the film very well. According to the collection reports the film has already claimed a gross of 4 CR+ from Kerala Box-office.
The major imperfections we feel in this movie is that a few songs were very much absurd and unclear. The movie goes forward in a non-linear manner. The editing of first half aroused some amount of confusions in viewers but all the bewilderments are resolved in the splendid second half. Acceptance of the film by all kinds of auidence is a qualm, but it will be welcomed by the energetic youngsters. The first half also delivers a slight lag feel to audience.
We also had a perception that the main BGM of the movie could have been used more efficiently. We also felt that Kalyani was unable to find her space in this movie as Tovino, Lukman and Shine has just stealed the show completely. After Minnal Murali, in this movie we witness Tovino, giving his full energy to this character.
As we are talking about a film full of fights, a major appreciation goes to the action choreography department headed by Supreme Sundar. The film has got about 7 extensive fight sequences and all of them were simply outstanding. Especially the theatre fight scene, is being considered as the finest one among all other action sequences. All the funky and diversified costumes used in the movie were also eye-catchy.
Overall we feel that Thallumaala is undoubtedly a Power packed action entertainer. It creates a festive mood in theatres. Thallumaala, A theatre watch? – Hell yeah!!!
